Mr. Cullen and Mrs. Mai met in Korea.
After living, working, and travelling abroad, they settled in Mrs. Mai's hometown of Miyazaki where they opened an afterschool English program for kids. A few years later, they had their very own child.
"We want our child to be able to speak English so that he can communicate with Mr. Cullen's family and later, travel around the world with ease. We also want him to learn skills that will help him succeed in the future. Most importantly, we want him to be happy, healthy, and enjoy life."
With these ideas in mind, they started Hinata International Preschool for their son and for all the children of Miyazaki.
